Set in the idyllic 1950s, A Long Walk Home features Berdine Williams, a tomboy always ready for an adventure with her close friend Michael. As time passes, their differences pull them apart. Michael has a difficult home life and often gets into trouble. Berdine's family doesn't want her getting involved. As Berdine grows into a young woman, she becomes convinced that Michael is meant for her. But when Berdine stands up to a bully on Michael's behalf, Michael walks away without a word to her. And when she goes to his house to apologize, she learns that he's moved to the home of his aunt and drill sergeant uncle on Parris Island. Author Barbara Andrews delves into the life of a younger Berdine, who is featured in Andrews's first novel, A Walk in the Park. As secrets unfold, Berdine closes herself off from her parents and sister, Kathryn, who don't understand her pain. Years later Michael and Berdine are brought together by a chance meeting, and Berdine sees a solemn recruit who gazes at her with coldness. Will time heal old wounds, or will past misunderstandings keep them apart? Follow the ups and downs of this tumultuous love as Berdine pursues her dreams and Michael takes A Long Walk Home.
